It’s a beautiful day

If you turn nine today, it may indeed be a beautiful day.

You may get one of these:


(which will require you to then decide what to do with the money you’ve been saving for one)

This beautiful day may lead to this:


(note: your reaction to the Talking Heads may differ, but I hope not)

Or this beautiful day may lead to this:


Or even this:


And then your excitement involves more members of the household:


An audience, as it were. (unless you’re the one in the background scratching your ear because you have an ear infection)

And then you also do this:


If you are the mother of a nine-year-old on this beautiful day, when you open your freezer, you may see this:


In which case you also wonder what to do about this since there are no additional people eating this particular ice cream cake and one of the household has given up sweets and dairy. (anyone want some cake?)

Ah, well, it is a beautiful day.



  1. Ah well diets sometimes have to take a brief holiday. Happy Birthday to her.

    Ice cream cake should never count as calories, especially not on beautiful birthdays.

  3. Nine? No. Way. She was just a baby last week, wasn’t she? Happy Birthday! Whatcha listening to on the iPod, Jingle?!

    Ah, what a beautiful birthday girl and birthday cake. Ice cream cakes are truly loved around here. Too bad there is not enough freezer space to have them. Perhaps I should make room since I do have a couple of household birthdays coming up.

    ah, 9. Such an interesting age, somewhere stuck between little and big, not quite double digits. Mine will be 10 this year. She’ll happily suck up that ice cream cake if it’s going spare!
